    Another great legal thriller from Dylan! I had trouble getting into the story at first, but the courtroom scenes were so authentic and loved how Sophie was prepared to being on the witness stand. The author has SUCH a talent for putting together realistic cases in fiction that make the reader feel as though this is EXACTLY how lawyers operate on a daily basis. Even though I never connected with Sophie in this story, she has an amazing heart and s...

    It was fascinating to read the behind-the-scenes details of courtroom proceedings for both the prosecuting side and the defense side. I've always understood the prosecutor's side - I mean we all want the bad guy brought to justice. But Dylan made me think how quickly we are to believe someone guilty if they have an unsavory background and that defense attorneys are there to make sure everyone has a fair trial. But I digress. Lone Witness is a gr...

    Senior ADA Sophie Dawson is prosecuting a large bank while sitting on the witness stand for a double homicide trial. But which case is putting her life on the line?There are a few players to keep track of and the ones I thought were the bad guys weren’t always the villains I imagined them to be. The investigation, preparation for trial, and courtroom scenes are what pushed the story forward, drawing me into the pages.Both Sophie and Cooper Knig...

    4.5 Stars! Rachel Dylan has upped her game in this one. It’s suspense from beginning to end. With being a witness and an attorney the action is non stop...this keeping the reader guessing. Except that at the end, I didn’t fall for the big surprise. I knew...which is probably just because I read a lot in this genre, but it made it somewhat anticlimactic for me. I was also a bit perturbed that the FBI couldn’t figure it all out ( yes, I reali...

    Title: Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice #2)Author: Rachel DylanPages: 320Year: 2018Publisher: BethanyMy rating is 5 out of 5 stars.When you start reading this story, be prepared to be unavailable until the end! In the story, we meet a seasoned prosecutor who witnesses a vicious crime and is the only witness to the perpetrator.

    I enjoyed this novel of legal procedure. It was slow paced and definitely character driven. The main character, Sophie, is a prosecutor with the county district attorney's office in the Atlanta area. She's just begun working in the white collar crime unit and has a big case involving possible fraud by a bank employee. On her way home late one evening, she stops at a convenience store and witnesses a double murder. The plot concentrates on how Sop...
  • Fiction Aficionado
    Fans of romantic suspense authors such as Lynette Eason, Patricia Bradley, and Cara Putman will likely enjoy this series from Rachel Dylan featuring a trio of female attorneys. The author’s experience as a litigator gives authenticity to her plots, and does so without overwhelming the reader with legalese, and this particular story even manages to combine both a civil and a criminal case, with Sophie Dawson being the prosecutor in one and the s...

    It was interesting seeing yet again different aspects of the justice system; the first book in the series was an eye-opener for me, and this one managed to cover significantly different ground. I really enjoyed the legal aspects of the story--both Sophie's prosecution case and her trial as a witness. I have to say, both cases went in directions I did not anticipate, and that makes it all the more enjoyable for me, though I'd have loved to see mor...

    Rachel Dylan’s extraordinary writing and legal knowledge are showcased in Lone Witness, second in her Atlanta Justice series. The character buildup, the circumstances each faces, and the faith with which they respond are written with empathy and sensitivity. It gives insight on just how dangerous the positions that some of our finest unsung heroes face, whether prosecutors, police officers, or even witnesses to egregious crimes.Sophie Dawson is...

  • Patti Whitson Stephenson
    I don’t want to give away any of the plot of the intriguing storyline. This legal suspense novel is quite a page-turner. The emphasis in this story is the courtroom drama, but there’s some sort of action taking place all through the story. The characters are believeable and relatable. There’s a little bit of romance thrown in, too, but it’s not the main theme of the story. After reading this book, Rachel Dylan is now on my list of favorit...
